Seminars and lectures at IAS

The Institute for Analytical Sociology, IAS, arranges research seminars every week, usually on Thursdays between 11.00-12:30

The topics discussed often focus on the core areas of IAS -- analytical sociology, organizational dynamics, segregation dynamics, and cultural dynamics -- but seminars also focus on other topics, including general theory and research methods.

In addition, we arrange various lectures and workshops featuring leading researchers in sociology and other disciplines from around the world.
Our events are open to everyone and we very much look forward to seeing you at one of our events!

Venue: Kopparhammaren 2, third floor, room KO301, Campus Norrköping. Notice that the seminar on October 25 is held in room KO202.
